I removed my mint 7 partition, GRUB remains!

Postby beanedtea on Fri Jul 31, 2009 11:19 am

:!: PLEASE HELP :!:

I installed mint 7 on a second partition, then realized I only wanted it on my Ibm as the primary OS. So I stupidly used my partition manager in windows to delete the partition, now when I boot, it still wants to boot up GRUB. How do I fix this, can I boot from my live cd and re-install on a new partition, and then remove properly? If so, please tell me how to remove properly. Or maybe I have to do something else.

Thanks

beanedtea,

Relax my friend. All is not lost. :-)

If you have the Windows disk you can use it to "fixmbr". I assume you have XP. If you don't have a Windows disk go to the url below and download and burn, slowly, the latest stable version of SuperGrub live cd iso. Boot with this in the drive and follow the instructions to repair your Windows MBR.

Well, I have vista, and that disc doesn't have a boot repair thingy. So the grub worked. Thank you
